Previous: Alex Fynn & Review of Arsenal AGM

Monday 20th October 2014 - 18:30

The next AST meeting will take place at 6.30pm on Monday 20 October. Please note that this meeting takes place at a different location in Holborn at Holborn Grange Hotel which is at 50 - 60 Southampton Row, London, WC1B 4AR.

We welcome football consultant and author Alex Fynn as our main guest. We will also review Arsenal's AGM and the financial accounts recently published by Arsenal.

The topic of Alex's talk is 'Arsene, David Dein & Me'.

Akex has recently published his long awaited sequel 'Arsenal and Arsene - the quest to rediscover past glories' to the best-selling Arsènal - The Making of Modern Superclub (first published in 2008 with new editions in 2009 and 2011) and together with Kevin Whitcher he examines the current state of Arsenal FC and their performance on and off the pitch since 2011.

Has head coach Arsene Wenger become a 'Specialist in Failure' (an accusation levelled at him by Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho) or does he oversee one of the best run clubs in world football?

Fynn and Whitcher have spoken to ex-players and to key members of staff at Arsenal to look at every facet of the club. From player wage structure to commercial activity, from youth team setup to transfer policy, from Board structures to the the fitness regime and seemingly endless string of injuries, the authors leave no stone unturned in their quest to explore the real story of Arsenal football club and their enigmatic manager.

AST members can buy the book at the discounted price of £7 at the following link - just use the promo code 'Trust' at the checkout stage.

There will also be an opportunity to buy the book on the evening and secure a signed copy. All members are welcome to attend and we look forward to hearing from you.
